How do I decipher 1.5 times slower i.e. if the speed is s, what would be 1.5 times slower?
Let's say Speed of Train A
If the speed of Train B
times faster than that of Train A
, then Speed of Train B = 10* S
How about thinking in reverse.
Speed of Train A is 10 times slower than that of Train B.
How would you calculate the speed of Train A if speed of Train B is 10*S.
You would simply divide the speed of Train B by 10.
So Speed of Train A = 10*S/10 = S.
So I think, for your question, you have to divide the speed s by 1.5 to get the slower speed.
